Pattern Gauge: Approx 10 sts = 3” 7.5 cm and 13 rnds = 3” 7.5 cm in Leaf Lace stitch.

Charm personified in a hat! This lovely lace hat is knit with just one-ball of incredibly soft chunky 100% baby alpaca yarn. It’s a quick project, knit seamlessly in the round, with lots of great details.

The leaf lace stitch is a pretty contrast to the 2x2 ribbing and works beautifully with the subtle color variations of this hand-dyed yarn. The button tab detail adds a whimsical accent. For the sample, instead of a button, I used a vintage shell buckle from my stash. The leaves on the buckle echo the lace pattern so nicely.

The hat is shaped at the top with just a little bit of slouch to give it a more modern fit! This is a very feminine hat that makes an ideal gift knit.

Special thanks to the holly tree dyeworksfor sponsoring this pattern and sending me the gorgeous chunky baby alpaca! (100% Baby Alpaca)

On the page 4, work through Rnd 31, not 32. The table should end with Rnd 31. Therefore, all the remaining Rnd numbers are off by 1 and the last Rnd should be Rnd 41.
